Paris Hilton plans trip to Rwanda in November

'I know there's a lot of good I can do,' she says

Paris Hilton is planning to visit Rwanda.

The hotel heiress - who vowed to better herself after serving 23 days in jail for driving offences in June - hopes to use her fame to draw attention to the plight of the war-torn African country.

Paris, 26, told E! Online: "I'll be going in November, after I get back from filming my movie.

"There's so much need in that area, and I feel like if I go, it will bring more attention to what people can do to help.

"I want to visit more countries where poverty and children's issues are a big concern.

"I know there's a lot of good I can do just by getting involved and bringing attention to these issues."

The Simple Life star - who is currently filming horror-musical Repo! The Genetic Opera in Toronto - was originally invited to Rwanda by Scott Lazerson, of Playing for Good, an organisation which helps top businesses and celebrities get involved in charity work.

Meanwhile, Paris was feeling less charitable at the AmFAR Rocks benefit party at New York's Puck Building on Monday night (24.09.07).

An insider told the New York Post: "Paris refused to be
photographed because the event was sponsored by Rock and Republic. She's about to bring out her own denim range and didn't want to promote any rival brands, so she stayed in a roped off area with her entourage."

After the party, Paris and her new Swedish boyfriend Alex Vaggo went for dinner at Stanton Social and later partied at Butter nightclub until 3am, drinking 13 bottles of champagne.
